  • Focaccia classes

Wine Tasting in Cinque Terre
In a small village above Manarola, a local passionate wine maker and his wife open their winery to guests. Taste the Cinque Terre DOC wine while enjoying stunning views of the terraced vineyards and the sea (note: this activity is available on Saturdays only).

Olive Oil from Levante and Portofino
The secrets of extra virgin olive oil will be revealed during a guided tour to one of the most famous mill in the region. Continue to Portofino, an attractive and posh village used in the past by sailors as a secure harbor along the coast. Not far from Portofino, to the west, the solitary massive structure of San Fruttuoso reflects itself in the sea. The abbatial complex owes its origins to the Bishop of Tarragona, who arrived here to secure the ashes of Saint Fruttuoso from the Arabic invasion. In the 13th. century, the Dorias then gave a new imprint to this picturesque and almost inaccessible township.

Cooking  and Focaccia classes
Our cooking classes and focaccia classes take place in the kitchen of small Ligurian restaurants where our cooks offer guests the opportunity of learning wonderful dishes from the Ligurian gastronomic tradition.
The cooking classes are held in English and all participants receive a small booklet of recipes and a souvenir.
You will be also invited to join the cook as she shops for fresh products and selects the ingredients for each lesson.
These classes are suitable for small groups (2 to 6 people), last about 4 hours and finish with a meal .
